Olympic Games mascots over the years have ranged from the iconic – think Misha the bear (Moscow 1980) or Hondori (Seoul 1988) – to the plain weird (we're looking at you, Wenlock). But if you thought nothing could be stranger than a mascot supposedly born from "the last drop of steel" used to build London's Olympic Stadium, think again.

The Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games mascots have been revealed, and they're a hoot. They're fun, they're sporty and they love to party – everything you want from an Olympic mascot... oh, and everyone thinks they look like part of the female anatomy (now, that's not something we looked at in our top character design tips!).
